Four Blues named to Brazil squad

Martin Stoever

It is, perhaps, easy to forget that Chelsea's Brazilian contingent isn't actually any lighter than it was last year despite the sale of David Luiz to Paris Saint-Germain. Although new signing Filipe Luis wasn't involved with the Selecao at the World Cup for reasons that remain unclear, he's very much a Brazilian, and he's been called up by Dunga for the country's upcoming friendlies against Colombia and Ecuador.

Luis joins Ramires, Oscar and Willian in the 22-man squad, which is missing plenty of players from Brazil's ill-fated summer. Only ten player's from Scolari's side survived Dunga's purge, so we're going to see a new-look Selecao this time around. Chelsea supporters in the USA will be able to see firsthand just how different this Brazil side is -- as well as a chance to catch the Blues' quartet live -- in Miami (vs. Colombia, September 5th) and New York (vs. Ecuador, September 9th).
